This shit is honestly the greatest.

anonymous asked:

Okay, but do you think Will's actions were at all influenced by the fact that he now knows Hannibal is _in love_ with him? Did that revelation change anything for him? What did Will's question, answered so eloquently by Bedelia, mean for the narrative of the show?

I almost hate to suggest this, but it’s possible the reason Will pulled Hannibal into his arms at the end of “The Wrath of the Lamb” was because he knew that the gesture would be overwhelming to Hannibal because Hannibal is in love with him. With that touch, Hannibal wouldn’t be able to think ahead to what must be coming next. (All that business about touch making us who we are and putting hands on shoulders for authenticity.) Which doesn’t mean that Will wasn’t authentically feeling the moment, but just that he knew exactly why it would work.

I honestly think the greatest purpose the revelation served was the “shit or get off the pot” business that Bryan Fuller talked about. Eventually the story has to step forward, and this was that step. I think it was less about giving us anything we didn’t already know and more about moving on from there, to get past discussing Hannibal’s feelings and focus on the question of whether Will returned those feelings: “But do you ache for him?”

That hanging suggestion that Will is in love with Hannibal does a few things, but most importantly, I think it cemented Will’s sense of not being able to save himself. “The Number of the Beast is 666″ was essentially about how Will was too intimate, too in sync with Hannibal. Will tells Bedelia that Hannibal has agency in the world in that same first scene as when she confesses Hannibal’s love to him. Hannibal’s motive for wanting Frederick Chilton harmed emerges in the “quantifiably bitchy” scene, and then the whole episode progresses without any contact between Hannibal and Will. But later, when Bedelia and Will discuss Frederick’s fate, Bedelia tells Will that he is Hannibal’s agency in the world. The suggestion is that the whole reason Will experienced the urge to put Frederick in danger at all was because it was what Hannibal wanted. Will even voiced Hannibal’s thinking directly in that therapy session with Bedelia, in response to her suggestion that because Frederick played, he paid. "Chilton languished, unrecognized, until Hannibal the Cannibal. He wanted the world to know his face.“ “And now he doesn’t have one,” Bedelia added, finishing her earlier thought about contrapasso: Frederick Chilton was punished at Hannibal’s whims and by his design, not Will’s or Francis’s. Will is so intimately involved with Hannibal that he can influence the world for Hannibal’s sake without intending to, wanting to, or even needing to ask Hannibal what he wants. In the context of the episode’s teaser leading with the question, “But do you ache for him?” the answer to this question seems to be Yes, yes, so much that I will act on his behalf, even against my own morals, to swat this fly that buzzes so annoyingly.

Going further, that conversation about Hannibal being in love with Will, and the suggestion that Will is in love with Hannibal, puts Will and Reba in parallel situations. It comes up as a piece of contrast between Will and Reba in “The Wrath of the Lamb,” when he tells her that she made Francis try to stop and that she probably saved some lives. She didn’t attract a freak–she attracted a man with a freak on his back–because there was nothing wrong with her. Unlike Will, who did attract the freak. His involvement with Hannibal puts lives in danger rather than saves them at this point. Again, the implication is that this is because there is something wrong with Will: the same “something” that caused him to be Hannibal’s “agency in the world” for Frederick Chilton. 

All of this helps prepare Will’s mindset that if he has to die, it’s probably for the best. After what happened to Frederick and before that, to Molly and Walter, it’s clear that, prison or no prison, Hannibal has to go. Will can’t conscience any of this, and since Hannibal has too much influence over him, he really ought to go too. He can’t move on like he wanted to in “Digestivo,” and the truth comes out about how he got Hannibal to surrender, that he wasn’t really moving on even then. Going back home really would be just like Hannibal said it would be: maddeningly polite, and he’d think of Hannibal. There wouldn’t be any point. His heart belongs with Hannibal anyway, not with the family he so carefully chose for himself, and it’s never going to belong anywhere else but with Hannibal. They might as well go together. At least this way, the dogs will be taken care of. 

So I think hearing the words spoken, that Hannibal is in love with him, allows Will to approach the question of his own feelings more honestly. With this self-insight, he frees himself of any real restraints and inner conflict for the first time in a long time. He finds death an acceptable outcome, because he really can’t live with Hannibal–his morals won’t let him–and he really can’t live without Hannibal, because he is in love with him. Bedelia helped him face that. 

I don’t think he planned for suicide specifically or that he knew exactly what he expected to happen between himself, Francis and Hannibal (in the sense that I doubt he’d have leaped to his death if Hannibal and Francis had somehow managed to kill each other without involving him), but I think finally accepting his and Hannibal’s relationship as one that’s in love helped ready him to take that dive off the cliff. When the moment comes, when he’s finally killed with Hannibal and is awash in the beauty of that moment, it doesn’t surprise him to the point of inaction. He’s able to draw Hannibal gently into his arms and guide them both into the abyss. The beauty, the love–they simply make his path more clear.

Background:

   In the wake of the Omnic Crisis, Mexico was left in shambles.  As reconstruction began, the LumeriCo Corporation began their construction of power plants, promising clean affordable power.  This however came at the cost of some of Mexico’s lower class losing housing and jobs.

   The rockstar Ernesto returned to his hometown of Mexico City after a world tour so that he could help in the re-construction effort, hoping that his presence and music would lift spirits.  What he came back to was a country torn into three: LumeriCo, the lower class, and the criminal organization of Los Muertos.

   Not wanting to see the carnage of Los Muertos affect the innocent lives of Mexico City, Ernesto used the pyrotechnics that his Latin-Rock concerts were known for and used them against Los Muertos, defending the lower class from their criminal activities, Ernesto became a voice for the lower class and eventually Ernesto began talks with LumeriCo about how to better the lives of those he stands for.
